Every year 1st of May is celebrated as the International Workers Day or May Day. It is a gesture to commemorate workers and is promoted by a cross section of anarchists, socialists, and communists. International Workers Day is built on the tradition of May Day, a spring time festival in the northern hemisphere. During the Second International, Soviet Union adopted the day as a token to celebrate the importance of laborers and workers.
